Cheeky Christmas

Hello again,

Well, I was busy, busy, busy last week making multiple Christmas cards including two cards with tongue most firmly in cheek. The first card I had an idea for a certain stroppy teen boy who lives next door, I saved one of my Aussie Santa images that I coloured and paper pieced the clothes and planned a graffiti look card with a bold sentiment heat embossed in white powder, a few smaller Christmas sentiments also heat embossed in red and black with a few tiny stamps added in for effect. unfortunately some of the tiny star stamps are hard to see, perhaps I should have used a different colour, but yellow did seem a good choice. The young lad was often caught hanging around at a local street art walk, not my cup of tea but bus loads of tourists seem to like it

My second card is for one of my Mum's kindy friends, who loves a good cheeky card, it features one of Bugaboo Stamps called Friends Don't Let Friends Wine alone 2, and a sentiment I have seen elsewhere which I typed up in two parts, the front has I'm dreaming of a White Christmas... and the inside has but if the white runs out I'll drink the red.
